DEL RIO, Texas—Border Patrol agents have arrested 353 illegal aliens with sex-related criminal convictions so far this fiscal year. A large number of the detainees had prior convictions for crimes involving a minor.
Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) went on Fox News on Monday to slam President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris for the border crisis that remains ongoing on the U.S. border with Mexico.
Crenshaw went so far as to say that he thinks the two of them “like” having the crisis, which is “why they don’t want to solve it,” adding that it is “pretty obvious” that Harris does not care about the issue and that her recent trip to the border was for a “quick photo op.”
Crenshaw Sounds Off
“It’s pretty obvious Kamala Harris does not care about this issue,” Crenshaw said. “I think it’s rather obvious she only went to visit where there was a convenient airport, where she could do a quick photo op, say she did it because she was sick of getting made fun of by conservative media that she never went, but she’s not going to actually take any action.”
“Look, when it comes to these facilities, they are overcrowded, they are overwhelmed, and we could wring our hands trying to figure out what to do with that, but we don’t have new ones just to build right off the bat, so we have to look at the source of the problem,” he added.
DEL RIO, Texas — A Border Patrol source tells Breitbart Texas that police and game wardens from other states will deploy in support on Monday. The Del Rio Sector will reportedly see immediate augmentation to their airboat patrols.
The source says the Florida Highway Patrol will deploy five airboats in the Del Rio area to assist in deterring river crossings. Specially trained SWAT officers from Iowa will join. The Nebraska Highway Patrol also sent 25 officers, according to the source.
At a press conference held last week, incoming Chief of the Border Patrol Raul L. Ortiz was asked what preparations the Border Patrol has made to integrate operations with the out of state law enforcement, and if he feared a potential “over-saturation” along the Texas Border.
